We've been in lovely St Remy en Provence for a week now and we can already see the changes.
Suddenly some of the leaves have begun to turn to rust, especially the Chestnut trees. ....
and we've found to our peril that sitting beneath their lovely shade can become quite hazardous.
" Conkers" have been suddenly erupting from above and whizzing past our heads (so far !) to smash open on the ground disgorging the round, shiny brown nuts.
The majestic Plane trees that are so commonly used for shade in the village squares and along the sides of the roads
are joining in the change by dropping rusty gold leaves that bring their own glow of colour to the stone pavements and delightful old fountains.
Elsewhere green remains the predominant colour and the days have been delightful with deep blue skies and warm temperatures around the 25 degree mark.
